Hi, folks. My father has been recently discovered with laryngeal cancer. After some period, he was prescribed with both radio and surgical therapy. I really don’t know why both. Can someone explain me this in plain words? I will really appreciate it since I am not a medical expert. Thank you in advance.

Hi, there. This shouldn’t surprise you much. It is a common thing when the cancer is in advanced stage. First radiotherapy kills the cancer cells. This is called neoadjuvant or introduction (additional) therapy. After this, the number of cancer cells is decreased. This will help in surgery and in removing the cancer tissue. I really cannot give you more details. You should consult your father’s oncologist. Bye!
